Talked to a neighborhood mechanic-he looked and could not find a petcock-he called a service deptmartment and was told not all 2000 Dakotas have a petcock and I should pull the lower hose and clean out the coolant reservoir by siponing the fluid out and flush and sipon until the water was clear. Believe this guy!!! I searched the net to find the radiator drain on my 2000 Dodge Dakota. I found about 6 answers that said it was on the lower part of the radiator on the drivers side. I found this answer and one more that said it didn't have a drain. I searched for it for half a day and decided that mine doesn't have a drain. I removed the hose to the water pump and some coolant drained out. I then ran a hose from the fawcet to my radiator and let the water overflow. I then disconnected the hose from the fawcet and let it syphon. I repeated this several times. I also removed the cap on the upper hose that mounts on top of the engine and flushed this hose with water. When you refill the radiator be sure to remove this upper hose from it's mounting clamp and hold it up and fill hose so that it will run into the engine. Otherwise you will create an air lock and cook your motor
On drivers side of radiator toward engine about 3 inches from bottom.
